(Forbes)  PTC’s CEO Jim Heppelmann recently discussed his thinking about how augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality would change Industrial IoT. PTC is a technology provider of products such as Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), the IoT and augmented reality. He believes the industrial industries, such as manufacturing, need to move from dashboards to real-time insights to be competitive. Heppelmann said augmented and virtual reality will transform how we work by making it possible for people to comprehend more information in an instant.
One of the reasons he believes AR/VR will be successful is that humans can comprehend visual images faster than the written world.PTCs vision is that a factory worker or plant manager could walk into the factory and instantaneously assess their environment based on digital information superimposed on their real view of the world.
